Education is a High Priority. Our goal is to integrate knowledge across subject areas, fully engaging your child and drawing them into the adventure of learning.
Our carefully designed activities focus on teaching more advanced practical life activities while enhancing social skills. Cleaning up, putting materials away, walking in a line, and tucking chairs in, … teaches respect for the classroom environment. This shared space provides an introduction to the importance of organization and cleanliness. Attending circle time, reading stories, writing and learning their letters and numbers, singing songs, and socializing with their friends are some of the fun activities your child will enjoy throughout the day.
STOKING CREATIVE IMAGINATION
Creativity blossoms with our Preschoolers. The art, dramatic play, dance, and music areas while being extremely popular nurture their creativity. Children are frequently practicing skills, trying new things, and using their imagination to understand the world around them and interact with their peers.
BUILDING INDEPENDENCE WITH RESPONSIBILITY
A more structured daily routine with self-care skills, helps your child learn problem-solving and conflict resolution skills while becoming physically independent. Our Teachers show them how to follow basic self-care routines like
- when & how of hand washing
- preparing themselves for a nap, on their own
- putting on shoes correctly
- brush teeth and hair
- dress themselves
…core skills to feeling all grown up. Interactions between the children allow more independence while still providing security and support from caregivers close at hand.
READING, WRITING, & CONVERSATION SKILLS
Activities such as “Words of the Week” help develop your child’s vocabulary & language usage – improving their reading and conversation. With visual learning and encouraged by the Teachers the children share in discussions, building language, and vocabulary with critical thinking.
EMOTIONAL & SOCIAL SKILLS
Training preschoolers with the concept of shaking hands, saying please and thank you, how to gracefully interject an adult conversation or how to cough and sneeze discreetly is a fun component for all. The classroom centers and activities are designed for small groups of children to interact with each other and to allow them to refine their social skills.
We teach an emotional vocabulary that lets them express themselves, resolve conflict, training them to get along well with others. Role-play, circle time among other approaches are used to introduce self-respect and respect towards others regardless of differences in nationality, religious belief, or cultural norms. Creating an environment that supports autonomy and freedom, develops a positive sense of self-confidence and self-awareness. Interactions between the children allow more independence while still providing security and support from caregivers close at hand.
INVIGORATING OUTDOOR PLAY
Our Playgrounds are specifically developed to promote and support gross motor skills development and muscle strength. Outdoor play (weather permitting) is an integral part of our curriculum. Enables the children to learn to play socially, cooperatively, and communicate.
